We encourage anyone who will be using the Major Employer Lists in publications or presentations to please contact CRI at 260-481-0286 to ensure the most up-to-date information is used.
If CRI cannot obtain a reliable estimate of FTE within the past 5 years, either by company response or through a reliable news source, CRI does not include that employer in the list.

If a person works full-time for the employer, this is 1.0 FTE. Some areas, such as schools and universities, may only employ a person for 10 months, but this meets the generally accepted definition of a full-time person and is counted as 1.0 FTE. Other employers may consider their employees as full-time if they work 35 hours per week, while others expect 40 hours. Generally, a position of 1,820-2,080 hours per year is considered one FTE.
Suggestions for calculating the number of part-time FTE: if there are many part-time positions, you may prefer to count or estimate all the hours worked in one year, and divide by 2080. For example, if the total number of hours paid in a year to part-time employees equaled 20,000, this is equivalent to 9.6 FTE (20,000/2080).
For seasonal employees, CRI had traditionally asked that these be converted to FTE and added to full-time employment. For example, 10 persons working full-time the 3 summer months or 3 months during the Christmas Season would be the equivalent of 2.5 FTE (10 x 3/12). But recognizing that seasonal employment can be quite varied among employers, it may be easier to add the total hours worked and divide by 2080 (in this case, that would be (10 persons x 40 hours per week x 13 weeks)divided by 2080, or 5200/2080 = 2.5 FTE.
CRI would be happy to assist in any calculations of FTE.
If CRI cannot obtain a reliable estimate of FTE within the past 5 years, either by Company response or through a reliable news source, CRI does not include that employer in the list.
